We were looking for a beachfront room/suite to stay in for a weekend getaway in Southern California, and found this lovely beachfront property, older (built in 1948) but recently renovated, charming, and just what we were looking for. Our room was spacious, and looked out directly on the surf. The sound of the waves lulled us to sleep in the night, and the views and the breeze kept us smiling all day. We enjoyed a gorgeous sunset that seemed to go on and on from our private balcony, walked on the beach into town when the tide was low, and on the main road (South Coast Highway) when the tide was high.
We were right on the beach, all we had to do was walk down 100 feet to the sand. The room, though renovated, was not kept up (bathroom fittings were loose, some were rusted), and the heater would not work the first night, but the staff were super friendly and fixed things as soon as we called.
The free continental breakfast was insubstantial, and can be skipped. Much heartier breakfasts are available within a block or two. Lots of gourmet and fashionable restaurants are within walking distance. There is also a nice, large, inviting pool, but we did not get a chance to use it.
Will definitely go back, again and again. A great weekend getaway. Go for a surfview room for the best experience. Very reasonably priced, compared to other properties in the area.
